I need some advice.
We have neighbors that have two cats. One stays inside their home (I've never actually seen it), and the other [collar-less one] stays out; stays out to pick up diseases that cause it to have bald spots, eat squirrel food left out by our elderly neighbors, jump into your car if the doors open, but most despicable: to poop in my yard.
I have even found it in my house.... walking out of my BEDROOM!
I hate this cat.
Here is my problem: WHAT DO I DO ABOUT IT?
I've already asked someone at animal control. They've said they're low-staffed so they only come out on dangerous/serious animal cases. She told me I could catch it and bring it in myself, but I'd rather not touch the thing. I spent 3 hours cleaning my room after "the incident". After all, I'm allergic.
Do I go over and explain that I think it's unfair that we all have to deal with getting ringworm (yes, some kid on the street got ringworm last year) from their cat because they don't keep it inside? That I'm growing weary of flinging cat poop over the fence at their house? This conversation would seem like the neighborly thing to do.
The problem with this scenario is that they both work and I'm afraid they aren't going to do anything about the cat then things will get really awkward because
(because I will)
and then they'll know who did it.
So I ask you: What would you do?
